1.1k-series continued.... cant get it to run-please help!
hey guys, im looking to get a car for my girlfriend to learn to drive in, and ive come across a decent looking K-series metro thats going VERY cheap.
its got a dodgy head gasket, which i know is a common fault on the K series engine, but its so dirty cheap i think im going to go with it anyway, and do the head myself.
has anyone done a head gasket on a K-series before? is it simple enough?
im pretty confident with mechanicals, having built my mini entirely myself including the engine, so surely a head gasket on this cant be too tricky?
ive been told id need to replace the head bolts too, as theyre super long and sandwich the engine together, do i need to do this? or is it just a way of getting another £38 from me?
any advice would be cool!
